ARES BTR GEN2 HD

4.5-27x50 APLR3 FFP IR MOA

Built off the success of the 1st generation Ares BTR, the GEN 2 is still a top-tier riflescope, without the price tag. The Ares GEN 2 acquires a new stainless steel turret design, just like the Midas TAC and Ares ETR lines. The new turret design features sharper, more tactile clicks. Still featuring HD glass, a new optical system provides an even brighter and clearer image throughout the magnification range. A one-piece, precision machined aircraft-grade aluminum 6061-T6 aluminum scope body, precision zero stop, and impeccable tracking will deliver precise, accurate results in any field.

    This is an amazing scope! Clear, and precise. Love the hard zero stop. It's FFP and the turret clicks are crisp. My 300 Win Mag and this Ares are a deadly pair. Looking forward to Elk and Mtn Goat seasons.

    If only the turrets were locking. Great in every other way, very positive clicks, glass is great, illumination is off between brightness settings which is a plus. Great scope for the price. Reticle is fantastic, especially at higher magnification. There isn't a better scope out there in this price range. Many scopes $1000 more that have the same or less features. If only the turrets were locking! Maybe Gen II

    There simply isn't a scope that can match this one for the price. The clarity of the glass is that of a higher end scope. It holds a good crisp image, even at 27x zoom. The light gathering on it was better than I expected. I was still able to see through the scope in the very early morning and late afternoon. The turret is a little soft on the clicks, but still noticeable. The tracking on the scope and field of view are both good. I would definitely recommend this scope to anyone who is looking for a longer range optic.
    The only thing to watch out for, when I took this scope out on a rugged mountain hunt. The rifle was knocked around a little, one of the screws for the turret fell out and i had to Re-Zero the gun. The gun wasn't dropped our thrown, just normal motion of being carried up and down steep terrain. Not enough to have me believe a screw should've fell out. This could just be a result of me not tightening the screw enough, but just keep an eye out for it!

    Crystal clear optics and precise adjustment turrets. Can't find anything to complain about. Really like the razor sharp reticle it is bright enough for sunny day use if needed.Turret clicks are on the soft side but fully functional. Very nice scope a real value at this price point, optics as good as scopes costing much more. I can't speak to the longevity, but so far I feel like I bought a winner, I guess time will tell. It usually does.

    Excellent scope. Glass clarity is good. Features all work well. You need to be perfectly behind it when on full power but the glass is clear and there is no milky distortions at full zoom. Clicks are a little soft and small but it lines up perfectly. Tracking is faultless. There is no scope cover or sunshade included so buy them now!

    This scope is amazing and for the price point I bought 2 lol u can't beat the price for the quality 8

    Received my Athlon BTR 4.5-27 this week and had the opportunity to shoot it today next to my zeiss V6 5-30. You guys did an awesome job with this scope. The clarity was on par with the zeiss which I didn’t expect at all from a scope less than half the price. The magnification dial feels perfect and it focuses easy. If I had one complaint about the scope it would be the clicks on the turrets feeling too light but that’s my personal preference. The reticle is perfect for what I do (long range shooting and hunting). Glad I ran across your scopes, now time to see if it holds up to pack trips in the hills.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Bought a scope to live on top of my 6.5 Creedmoor, and it was great - until it wasn't. Spoke with Chuck, who fixed me right up with a new replacement scope. Here's the thing... it was on my front porch LESS THAN 48 HOURS after I spoke to Chuck. When the RMA shipping ticket was emailed to him, he immediuately put the replacement scope in the mail. Same day.
    Doesn't get any better than that.
    Oh - and the replacement is perfect. Almost like cheating at 400 yds, easy at 600 yds, works great for 1000yds (I am the limitation beyond 600).
    Best bang for the buck I have ever seen.
    Buy with confidence - I will again.
